Maneka Gandhi, a BJP MP and animal rights activist, condemned the incident, highlighting the gravity of the crime. “This is a grade 1 crime, seven years in jail, a wildlife crime. King cobras die when their venom is taken out. Their venom is for digesting food. Without the venom, they can’t eat anything and thus they die,” she stated.
